Native encoding, UTF-8 and Windows

Hello everybody.

We are using the following clients, running on Windows XP SP3, language = Spanish, region = Spain (es_ES):

Collabnet Subversion Client 1.5.5
TortoiseSVN 1.5.7

We set the language of TortoiseSVN to English, because we like to use it in English (we have foreign partners). I don't remember if we "set" the language of Collabnet Subversion Client to anything during the installation, but we see all the message in English, and we like it.

Almost everybody uses TortoiseSVN, but, from time to time, some of us have to use the command line.

So, the other day I was surprised when I do a 'svn log *' from the command line and I saw this:

C:\proj\DRE\SW\Docs>svn info *
svn: Can't convert string from native encoding to 'UTF-8':
svn: Gu?\237aMigraci?\243n.doc

Our locale is set to es_ES (a la Windows, i.e., with the Control Panel), but I don't know how to tell svn that the namefiles are set in "Windows Spanish".

How should I proceed?
